If you really are, as you say, as starving artist, then you will understand what each kind of bow is (or is not) doing for you by trying it. I suggest you try each kind of composite bow (regardless of what you can afford) and select the one you like best (that you can afford) but do try to buy the one you try because there can be differences (subtle and not so subtle) between different examples of the same brand.
I own Spiccato, Coda (classic), CF Duro, Glasser Composite, and E. Jumeau (a pernambuco/carbon hybrid from the Finkel shop) bows, as well as selection of Pernambucos (Voirin on down) and my favorite for most purposes is the Spicatto, which unfortunately does not fit your budget.
The Coda was the first of these that I acquired, and upon so doing I got rid of some of my better pernambuco sticks (including a Lothar Seifert, silver tip, that Shar sells for over $1K)- but would not do much for me "off the string" (but I should add that it worked well off the string for some people and on the string for me).
However, if you are a fairly new player, you would be surprised what a simple Glasser Composite (for less than $100) can do for you. I have a student who could not get a decent spiccato stroke on the Chardas (by Monte) using her W. Seifert bow and when I handed her the Glasser the bounce was there in exactly the way she had been bowing and so the spiccato stroke played very well.
But a more experienced player might be able to get more out of the more expensive Musicary or Coda sticks.
The Spiccato (at least mine-which has a simulated whalebone grip) seems to give everyone great control and sound at any level of accomplishment. The Finkel sticks vary a good bit (including, as they, do a natural material). My Jumeau articulates wonderfully (it's a great Bach bow), but it's not good off the string (for me) and I can't handle it for Mozart (yet). (My experience with the Finkel shop cello bows, however, is that the bow Finkel (himself) makes handles very well and not only articulates wonderfully in sound, but also in "feel.") I suspect that his violin and viola bows may be equal, but I don't know for sure - but his bows are not cheap.
You just have to try first.
